Many Uses Mason Jars

by Danielle Boudreau

Mason jars are all the rage. They are inexpensive and have so many adorable uses. Here are just a few of my favorites; enjoy and get crafting!

Cut a small hole into the lid of your mason jar and use a colorful straw as an accent. Give your cup the finishing touch with a cute hemp twine bow. Fill with pink lemonade for a refreshing treat on a hot summer day.

Grow your favorite herbs in a mason jar. Use chalkboard paint and chalk to label each jar. You’ll have fresh basil, thyme and rosemary in no time!

Line up multiple mason jars with toiletries, pantry items or craft supplies. Hang your mason jars by attaching pipe clamps to a wooden plank.




Use two parts glue, one part dish soap and the  food coloring of your choice to paint a light glaze on your mason jar and give it some color. You can also decorate with hemp or ribbon of your choice.

Just as you would a shadowbox, fill a large mason jar with your favorite memories from a specific event or time.

Remove the middle part of your mason jar lid and insert a pin cushion in its place. Use the jar to store sewing supplies.

Use a mason jar for creative gift-giving. Layer a bread or cake mix, make a homemade bath soak or put together a manicure kit as a gift!

Keep it simple and tie a straw bow around your mason jar. Use a tealight, water and glass beads to make your floating candle. This is also a beautiful centerpiece for a vintage-wedding look.




Use spray adhesive to glue a paper or a cloth doily to your mason jar. Place a tea light inside for a romantic look. Adorn with burlap, twine, ribbon or buttons.
